Shooting Stars and Biblical Conspiracies

virgin means untainted

although i am not innocent

this is how

he left me

 

this olive oil has been touched

mutilated

impure

 

why do they call it making love?

love

my darling

is not real

people in love are children on Christmas Eve

awaiting the arrival of Saint Nick who is ultimately

the parents

 

why not use the more scientific term: sexual

reproduction

it is a fact

it can be verified

that is its original purpose — to reproduce

a form of pleasure at its finest

 

love

it is only real because couples drop their hope

coins into wishing wells

bigfoot hunters are desperate

beg for your myths to be legitimate

 

“making love”

it should be making lust

lust

i hear is a sin

there are already countless religious beliefs that condemn my actions to hell

so be it

i heard burning is another form of self harm
